Retinal astrocytomas are benign tumors of the retina. Their localization can be solitary, multiple, or bilateral in both eyes. It is also known that they can be part of a phakomatosis syndrome (i.e., tuberous sclerosis or neurofibromatosis). Because retinal astrocytomas have a slow growth rate, yearly controls by an ophthalmologist with interdisciplinary consultation are adequate. Some uncommon cases have been reported in which the tumor has grown more aggressively. These tumors may require therapeutic interventions (e.g., vitreoretinal surgery, brachytherapy, photodynamic therapy, or cryotherapy).
